Atheism (Paperback): Alexandre Kojeve Atheism (Paperback)
Alexandre Kojeve; Translated by Jeff Love
R444 Discovery Miles 4 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

One of the twentieth century's most brilliant and unconventional thinkers, Alexandre Kojeve was a Russian emigre to France whose lectures on Hegel in the 1930s galvanized a generation of French intellectuals. Although Kojeve wrote a great deal, he published very little in his lifetime, and so the ongoing rediscovery of his work continues to present new challenges to philosophy and political theory. Written in 1931 but left unfinished, Atheism is an erudite and open-ended exploration of profound questions of estrangement, death, suicide, and the infinite that demonstrates the range and the provocative power of Kojeve's thought. Ranging across Heidegger, Buddhism, Christianity, German idealism, Russian literature, and mathematics, Kojeve advances a novel argument about freedom and authority. He investigates the possibility that there is not any vantage point or source of authority-including philosophy, science, or God-that is outside or beyond politics and the world as we experience it. The question becomes whether atheism-or theism-is even a meaningful position since both affirmation and denial of God's existence imply a knowledge that seems clearly outside our capacities. Masterfully translated by Jeff Love, this book offers a striking new perspective on Kojeve's work and its implications for theism, atheism, politics, and freedom.

The Notion of Authority (Paperback): Alexandre Kojeve The Notion of Authority (Paperback)
Alexandre Kojeve
R364 Discovery Miles 3 640 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

"In The Notion of Authority, written in the 1940s in Nazi-occupied France, Alexandre Kojeve uncovers the conceptual premises of four primary models of authority, examining the practical application of their derivative variations from the Enlightenment to Vichy France. This foundational text, translated here into English for the first time, is the missing piece in any discussion of sovereignty and political authority, worthy of a place alongside the work of Weber, Arendt, Schmitt, Agamben or Dumezil. The Notion of Authority is a short and sophisticated introduction to Kojeve's philosophy of right. It captures its author's intellectual interests at a time when he was retiring from the career of a professional philosopher and was about to become one of the pioneers of the Common Market and the idea of the European Union."

Introduction to the Reading of Hegel - Lectures on the "Phenomenology of Spirit" (Paperback): Alexandre Kojeve Introduction to the Reading of Hegel - Lectures on the "Phenomenology of Spirit" (Paperback)

"This collection of Kojeve's thoughts about Hegel constitutesone of the few important philosophical books of the twentiethcentury a book, knowledge of which is requisite to the fullawareness of our situation and to the grasp of the most modernperspective on the eternal questions of philosophy." Allan Bloom (from the Introduction)

During the years 1933 1939, the Russian-born and German-educated Marxist political philosopher Alexandre Kojeve (1902 1968) brilliantly explicated through a series of lectures the philosophy of Hegel as it was developed in the Phenomenology of Spirit. This collection of lectures originally compiled by Raymond Queneau and edited for its English-language translation by Allan Bloom shows the intensity of Kojeve's study and thought and the depth of his insight into Hegel's Phenomenology. More important for Kojeve was above all a philosopher and not an ideologue this profound and venturesome work on Hegel will expose the readers to the excitement of discovering a great mind in all its force and power."

In the most political work of a man who influenced a generation of leading French intellectuals and scholars, Alexandre Kojeve gives a systematic discussion of the themes of right and law and his case for the character of the justice of equity. In addition, Kojeve accounts for the origins and development of right and justice from the master-slave dialectic, through which he shows that law is an autonomous and conceptually unified phenomenon.

The Notion of Authority - A Brief Presentation (Hardcover): Alexandre Kojeve The Notion of Authority - A Brief Presentation (Hardcover)
Alexandre Kojeve; Translated by Hager Weslati
R435 Discovery Miles 4 350 Out of stock

Alexandre Kojeve has been an often subterranean influence on twentieth- century thought. With his profound interpretation of Hegel he became a key reference for such varied thinkers as Jean-Paul Sartre, Andre Breton, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, and Leo Strauss. He returned to prominence after the collapse of the Soviet Union, as the surprise inspiration for Francis Fukuyama's notorious thesis in The End of History. In The Notion of Authority, written in the 1940s in Nazi-occupied France, he uncovers the conceptual premises of four primary models of authority and examines the practical application of their derivative variations from the Enlightenment to Vichy France. This foundational text, here translated into English for the first time, is the missing piece in any discussion of sovereignty and political authority, ready to take its place alongside the work of Weber, Arendt, Schmitt, Agamben or Dumezil.The Notion of Authority is a short and sophisticated introduction to Kojeve's philosophy of right, while in the context of his biography its significance resides in the fact it captures his puzzling intellectual interests at a time when he retired from the profession of philosophy and was about to become one of the pioneers of the Common Market and the idea of the European Union.

The Concept, Time, and Discourse (Hardcover): Alexandre Kojeve, Robert B Williamson, James H. Nichols The Concept, Time, and Discourse (Hardcover)
Alexandre Kojeve, Robert B Williamson, James H. Nichols
R831 Discovery Miles 8 310 Out of stock

Alexandre Kojeve (1902-1968) is most widely known in America for his provocative assertion that history is at its end, that is, its completion. In the "practical" sense, this means that the process of historical development can at last be seen (if from a distance) as the realization of the Marxist "universal and homogeneous state." However, Kojeve claimed as well that the history of philosophical thinking had also reached its goal in the transformation of philosophy, as the "love of wisdom" (or the unsatisfied quest for comprehensive knowledge), into that very Wisdom itself and had done so in the most essential respects in the philosophy of Hegel. The Concept, Time, and Discourse is the first volume of Kojeve's magnum opus, which was to have given an exposition of the (Hegelian) System of Knowledge and of which five volumes were written before his death. It contains, along with a preliminary discussion of the need for an updating of the Hegelian system, the first two of three introductions to the exposition of that system: a First Introduction of the Concept (the integrated totality of what is comprehensible, which is the final object of philosophic inquiry) and a Second Introduction concerning Time, both introductions leading to the (Hegelian) identification of the Concept with Time, an identification which alone takes adequate account of the fact that Philosophy is necessarily discursive (that it must actualize the requirements and essential structure of Discourse). The present volume offers Kojeve's fullest statement of his Ontology. It includes a critical discussion of the traditional oppositions of the "general" to the "particular" and of the "abstract" to the "concrete" and an analysis of the act of "generalizing abstraction," which detaches Essence from the Existence of Things. Kojeve then discusses the three great figures in the three-stage development of philosophy into wisdom: Parmenides, Plato, and Hegel. Parmenides' monadic account of Being (= Eternity) rendered it ineffable, thereby reducing philosophy to (non-philosophic) silence; Plato's dyadic account of Being (as eternal) was intended to make Being a possible subject of discourse but failed to reflect adequately the triadic (and temporally developing) structure which Plato himself discerned in Discourse. Finally, Hegel's triadic account of Being as itself "dialectical" achieved the final identification of the Concept with Time. This is a first-time, meticulous translation of Kojeve's late, unfinished magnum opus, the "updating" of the Hegelian System of Knowledge, meaning its modification so as to make it comprehensible to the author himself and to his contemporaries. It is, however, much more than an exposition of its central terms, The Concept and Time and their identity. It is an acute, original review of the major themes of the West's philosophical tradition; it is, in fact, a philosophical education in itself. Robert Williamson has done this tradition a great service by making Kojeve's work accessible to Americans. - Eva Brann, Dean Emerita and Senior Faculty, St. John's College, Annapolis, Maryland We now recognize Alexandre Kojeve as one of the central figures of 20th century European philosophy. A translation of his The Concept, Time, and Discourse will enable English speaking readers to have a fuller understanding of his remarkably ambitious intellectual project. - Michael S. Roth, President, Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut. Robert B. Williamson is Tutor Emeritus at St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, where he continues to teach. He is co-author, with Alfred Mollin, of An Introduction to Ancient Greek (University Press of America) and the author of articles on Plato's philosophy and Einstein's early work on relativity theory. James H. Nichols, Jr. is Professor of Government and Dr. Jules L. Whitehill Professor of Humanism and Ethics at Claremont McKenna College, where he teaches political philosophy. Among his publications are Epicurean Political Philosophy: The De rerum natura of Lucretius, translations with interpretations of Plato's Gorgias and Phaedrus, and most recently Alexandre Kojeve: Wisdom at the End of History.
